    The food was excellent! The fixed price menu is a great idea -- simple, easy to select. The wine selection was very limited. The service was good, polite, attentive. The ambience was fresh, modern. We would highly recommend Bloom.

    The food was very good and the staff was attentive. It was obvious that they were in training and their supervisor was directing them. The overall experience was very good and well worth the time and expense.

    Food was better than Langdon hall, as nice or better as any high end restaurant. Delish ! Our waitress Anigha was delightful, caring, prompt and excellent. Can’t wait to go back. Thank you.

    We hadn’t been to Bloom in a number of years, but decided to give it a go since we enjoyed dining there prior to the renovations. Needless to say…what a change and NOT for the better. Although the restaurant has a new contemporary look, it was like sitting in a fishbowl. On both sides are floor to ceiling glass walls that look directly into the schools hallways. There was a steady stream of students walking by which definitely took away from the ambience and very distracting. The food is still very good and portions are large. For these reasons, I give it 4 stars. This is what Bloom does the best and you really can’t beat the value. Now onto the service. Wow! I highly recommend that some of these students find a different career choice than hospitality. Our server was so quiet I could not hear what she was saying. She appeared to be a scared, very timid and unsure of herself. Not knowledgeable at all to the point of when it came time to replace our cutlery from the appetizer to main entree…she placed the knife and fork on the wrong sides. Having said that, there was no one to support, guide and correct all the mistakes we experienced. So incorrect and bad service will continue. All in all, I would not go back or recommend Bloom. We had the feeling that the students were just there to get a credit and least interested in learning proper techniques. We were so looking forward to entertaining the idea of more dining experiences at Bloom, but alas, that will not be the case.
